What I Wear to Work: Meredith Fineman Likes the Lady Tuxedo

Also high heels, Equipment blouses, and finds scored from discount racks.

Who: Meredith Fineman, 25
CEO of FinePoint Digital PR; freelance writer and founder/editor of TheFFJD and Girls Aren’t Funny

What she does: I wear lots of different hats, and by hats I mean bracelets and heels. I founded my digital PR company, FinePoint, to marry my marketing background with my interests in social and digital media. I’m also a freelance writer for a ton of different outlets, as well as the founder of two sites of my own. On a daily basis, I do everything from social media maintenance to new business proposals to pitching bloggers. When I take a break from FinePoint, it’s usually to write or eat Chopt. I love having my own business, so that’s definitely a perk. My boss loves me! But sometimes she also hates how much toner I use in the copier.

Describe your work style: The industry I’m in lets me wear pretty much whatever I want, and I do just that. My professional style is colorful and somewhat whimsical. I love the combination of business on top (blazers, silk blouses) and party on the bottom (Converse, great denim).

Nighttime Party

This is my lady tuxedo. I bought these Stella McCartney pants on clearance three years ago from Filene’s Basement, when I thought they made me look like a lion tamer. Now they’re cool.

Giuseppe Zanotti heels from Ella Rue, vintage blouse and clutch, and bracelets by Herm├Ęs and Ippolita.

Typical Day at the Office

I am the Mr. Rogers of Equipment blouses. I love them. This printed one is from Nordstrom Rack—sometimes I get lucky and find them there.

Skirt from Barney’s outlet in Leesburg and shoes from Necessary Clothing.

Networking

I love heels. High, high heels. They make me feel tall and important. These are YSL—I can walk in them for about an hour and a half before I cry and return to Havaianas. I go out at night to lots of events, and this outfit is usually my go-to. I’m definitely a separates person.
